Popmart and certain songs

Just got a few questions:

1. Where did you see Popmart?

2. Did they ever play "Do You Feel Loved" on the tour? and if not why do you think they didnt do it ?

3. I Know they played "Discotheque"and "Last Night On Earth"and was just wondering how they came across live, cos i imagine that "Discotheque" would be a tricky one to do live.

Appreciate any comments. TY

1. At home on my comfortable couch

2. I don't know, think a couple of times

3. What I saw on the popmart video fromMexico, I love those performances especially Discotheque. The slower part in Last night on Earth, where Edge sings the high notes I didn't like, was much better on the album.

They did...but not very often. I think they just had a hard time with it.

I LOVED them! I confess though, I'm not one of those technical folks who really notices if there are glitches and whatnot.

1-in 98 Popmart came for RJ and SP but I didnt even had a heck of what was u2 at that time , so .....

2- They had problems in perform it , besides they didnt feel the song belonged much to the set , so drop it ........

3- Both were great moments of the tour , songs that really worked , specially Last Night , that was regarded as the highlight of the tour , I say it even tops Hold Me , Thrill me ..... as best Rock song of the tour

The Perfomance of LNOE in mexico is just amazing , it's one of those moments u get so glad they captured in video , really great , that bridge when the tempo get slower , Larry stays only with cymballs , and Edge and Adam on slides is

I didn't. Still annoyed I missed Popmart Brisbane, even though I was only 11 and had only just moved to Australia.

They played it six times at the start of the tour. I think they just decided it didn't really get the crowd going, because I don't think they really had a hard time playing it, at least not like they did with IGWSHA and SATS. But if you want to see a list of concerts it was played at: http://www.u2-vertigo-tour.com/song99.html

I think both LNOE and Discotheque were significantly better live. LNOE rocked a lot, but Discotheque exceptionally improved. I think it's one of the weaker songs on Pop, but the Popmart live version is one of my favourite things that U2 has ever done. Edge's wailing guitar and Bono going mad with snippets at the end was pretty cool. (There's one really funny version where Bono snippets It's Raining Men in Tampa, 1997-11-10. That one made me laugh.)

1. Where did you see Popmart?
2 X Giant Stadium NJ

2. Did they ever play "Do You Feel Loved" on the tour?
Yes at only one show.

3. Personally LNOE is still one of my favorites and it rocked then and rocked on Vertigo. Discoteque was fun and extremely lively.

Like I said before, DYFL was done at six shows. That person may have been thinking of IGWSHA, which was only played in full at the first Popmart gig - a stripped down version played by just Bono and Edge was played for most of the rest of the first leg before it was dumped in late June 1997 for New Year's Day.

And Last Night On Earth was played at every single Popmart concert but has not been performed live since. The only Pop song performed on Vertigo was Discotheque, a mere two times.

1. Helsinki Olympic stadium and Lansdowne stadium in Dublin

2. Yes, I know of at least one time coz I have an audio tape recording of it from Samboyd stadium in Las Vegas.

3. By the time U2 came to Finland, and later Dublin, they had a very tight set and both of the songs you mentioned sound great live!!

1:

I never experienced POPmart live unfortunatly.

2:

I believe at one show, i think it wasnt great for a live performance.

3:

LNOE just rocked Live. Watch the Live from Mexico VHS tape (or vcd, dvd etc) it just rocks Live. Especially the last part when they go all out on the guitars!!

Discotheque also improved live compared to the album version, although the album version certainly isnt bad.

Are people not reading previous posts?

I'll say this for the third time: Do You Feel Loved has been performed live six times.

Yep sorry read it now.

But still six times is not much. So i assume it didnt fit in right Live?
